3 3 EDUCATING ENTREPRENEURS FOR THE WORLD Editorial Over more than a decade now, has been standing as a Business Schol of reference in Europe, and this status of reference is largely the outcome of its project: Educating entrepreneurs for the World, and the quality of its innovative education and research & development activities. Indeed, there is no first-tier higher-education institution whose education is not supported and nourished by a strong research culture and significant intellectual contributions. Research-wise, was in many ways in continuity with the earlier years, and I am very glad to share with you the remarkable accomplishments of Faculty. also marked the endpoint of a successful five-year catching-up period. Indeed, was fully re-accredited for 5 years in fall 2014 by two important international accreditation agencies, EQUIS and AACSB. Both recognized the volume and relevance of intellectual contributions, and its international quality, and underlined the significant progress that has been made since Visiting in January 2015, the French evaluation agency HCERES also praised the research output and culture of Faculty, including a thriving Ph.D. programme. That being said, this continuous progress in research and development should not hide the on-going discontinuities that characterize the industry of higher education in management. Fully aware of the shifting and more constraining French regulations, shrinking public resources, new (mainly private) entrants in the market, new expectations by critical audiences regarding intellectual contributions (from primarily scholarly publications to impactful intellectual contributions ; from rigor to rigor & relevance), and technological transformations (including the digital turn and the growth of big data and computer algorithm that fuel worldwide growth), Business School launched a new strategic plan in September 2014 called NEW TERRITORIES 2020, with globalization, digitalization and performance as its three pillars. For research, new territories are threefold: (1) building and developing three clusters of excellence, namely Lifestyle, Work & Organization, and Entrepreneurship & Growth that address transdisciplinary issues and combine top-level intellectual contributions, innovative educational offers and dedicated business networks; (2) developing knowledge and expertise in and for new territories, i.e. fast-developing geographical zones and fast-developing hybrid domains that cross borders between science and management such as business opportunities related to the digital & robotic breakthroughs; and (3) building stronger cooperation with the local, i.e. metropolitan research labs of both universities and engineering schools, in order to respond to the legitimate ambition of the metropolis, and this includes more ambition in pre-doctoral and doctoral education. In short, NEW TERRITORIES 2020 opens up an avenue of opportunities for researchers, including also relations with worldwide IBM structures, labs, and teams in relation with the Smarter Business School project.

5 5 research POLICY Philippe Monin Professor of Strategic Management, Director of Research Research is at the heart of strategies past and present adopted by Business School and will remain so in the future. Of capital added value, research and more generally intellectual contributions are the foundation for both the legitimacy and the international reputation of the School, and they feed the Faculty s expertise to the benefit of participants in s programmes. The Faculty s mission is to create knowledge, to develop new tools and pedagogical innovations, and to spread that knowledge in the form of intellectual contributions, notably academic and professional publications, by using face-to-face, distant and blended pedagogical means, in order to promote the continuous development of international entrepreneurial management skills. Thanks to its scientific activity, the Faculty is able to achieve this mission and, moreover, provide partner companies with precious mechanisms for the monitoring and updating of knowledge. ORGANISATION OF RESEARCH AT The Research Department is responsible for defining the research policy, leading research development and promoting research at. The Research lab, re-evaluated by the AERES in early 2015, consists of all members of the Faculty holding a Ph.D. (95 as of ) and 25 PhD and Post-doc students all employed by. Part of the Research Unit is structured according to five areas of research, each with its own corresponding Research Centre or Institute: Organizations, Careers, and Elites (OCE); Entrepreneurship Research Centre (CRE); the French Corporate Governance Institute (IFGE); the Centre for Financial Risk Analysis (CEFRA); and the Research Centre for Entrepreneurial Finance (ReCEntFin). The research department comprises the director of the Ph.D. programme and doctoral studies. It provides the link between the research VPs or their equivalent and the doctotal school directors at the universities and Grandes
6 6 Ecoles. The main mission of the Director of Research is to lead research management and research development at in liaison with the economic sectors. S/he reports to the Academic Dean. S/he is a member of the Executive Committee. S/he regularly convenes the Scientific Committee.

Cathy PARDO Markets & Innovation François QUITTARD-PINON Economy, Finance and Control Raison d être of research AT At, we deeply believe that both individual and collective research must co-exist. We also believe that collective and organized research in Centres and Institutes has to support and nourish s singular mission: Educating Entrepreneurs for the World. By now, all five Institute and Research Centres are involved with s educational mission. Below is an extract from the Academic Report. Since then, this extract has been repeatedly referenced in all subsequent annual scientific reports: Whatever the strategic priorities, Lionel SITZ Markets & Innovation it must be clear that Business School sincerely believes in the individual freedom of professors in selecting their research interests and managing their research projects. This belief is an integral part of s strategic positioning: that of a Generalist Higher Education institution (the French Grandes Ecoles tradition). Consequently, to all those participating in our programmes we have a duty to guarantee a Faculty which is academically qualified in all disciplines relating to management, and we ensure that nothing is overlooked.. As a result, the faculty can develop its research work autonomously.
7 7 Nevertheless, the Research Policy encourages structured research, particularly by allocating additional resources to two types of groups: the Research Centres and the Institutes. A Research Centre is headed by a scholar who is authorised to supervise doctoral research [The French Habilitation à Diriger des Recherche - HDR]. It brings together scholars from several disciplines, who share an ambitious research programme. An Institute carries the institutional reputation and develops its work at the interface of the academic and business communities and the rest of society. It is innovative in terms of programmes and education, both pre- and postexperience. An institute is run by a group of professors who have succeeded in building an academic and extra-academic reputation through peer-referenced works on an international scale and through multiple references in the relevant media [...]. These research centres and institutes, each from a particular angle, echo Business School s promise: Educating Entrepreneurs for the World. Yet as we mentioned above, research centres and institutes do not constitute the only research activities conducted by the Faculty. Innovation often results from emerging work, led by single faculties and/or professors who organise themselves into informal groups, in disciplinary or thematic fields that may be far away from research centres. The sociology of the science tells us that it is often these marginal or heterodox initiatives which generate the greatest progress. The governance of the research acknowledges and reflects this tradition of dual research. In summary, strong Research Centres and Institutes supported by a recognized collective of scholars should be balanced by individual research initiatives. THE RESEARCH LABORATORY The Research Laboratory is a full part of the Business School facility. It has adopted the primary mission of supporting the teaching of entrepreneurial skills oriented towards reasoned action. It strives for the transformation of institutions and organisations, and the development of capacities for critical, autonomous and conscious analysis. In order to reach this objective, Research has set up five Research Centres that each focus on a particular angle of Business School s guiding principle, Educating Entrepreneurs for the World. The first centre studies Entrepreneurial Processes. The Entrepreneurship Research Centre has examined five priority research topics over the last few years: the study of processes for the creation of innovative activities; organizational entrepreneurship; teaching and the evaluation of the effectiveness of entrepreneurial teaching programmes; the evaluation of public policy in the field of company creation and takeovers, and the dynamics of fast-growth start-ups. The Entrepreneurship Research Centre is managed by Alain Fayolle. The second centre examines governance in relation to the political legitimacy of the entrepreneur. Four main research topics form the basis of targeted work and publications: executives versus management; shareholders versus investors; financial capital versus human capital; business versus society. Thanks to the activity and influence of its Director, Pierre-Yves Gomez, the French Corporate Governance Institute (IFGE) is a major player in research into governance. The third centre is concerned with the political and critical analysis of organizations and management. The Organizations, Careers and New Elites (OCE) research centre was created in 2005 and is dedicated to the political and critical analysis of organizations and management. Three themes have been the subject of study and targeted publications: Organizational change and life at work; Social innovations and managerial alternatives; and Valuation, markets and society. Organisations, Careers and New Elites (OCE) is directed by Ignasi Martí-Lanuza. The fourth centre aims at analyzing financial risk, which is the subject favored by researchers at the CEnter for Financial Risks Analysis (CEFRA) created in 2007 and directed by Olivier Le Courtois. The Center for Financial Risks Analysis attempts to stimulate exchanges between corporate finance, market finance, insurance and risk management. With this fourth centre, Research demonstrates two of its convictions: that the understanding and approach to risk (notably, but not only, financial risk) are at the heart of the entrepreneurial dynamic, and that the relationship between the entrepreneur and risk (notably, but not only, financial risk) varies according to institutional systems. Consequently, a detailed understanding of risk is essential in order to contribute to the entrepreneurial agility of students and participants in programmes.
8 8 The year 2013 saw the birth of a fifth research centre, the Research Centre for Entrepreneurial Finance (ReCEntFin). Headed by Alexander Groh, its major contribution is the creation and dissemination of research on entrepreneurial finance to enhance transparency and mutual comprehension between entrepreneurs and financiers. The Research Laboratory also includes a certain number of researchers whose work is not directly related to the baseline. Indeed, the policy of Research cannot be disassociated from the specific positioning of Business School, which is that of a generalist Grande École. We must therefore offer our programme participants a faculty staff qualified in all the main disciplines in the field of management. As a result, Research professors are able to develop their research work outside the five centres described and within the framework of traditional disciplines, such as marketing, finance, accounting, information systems, strategy, etc. Therefore, Research has adopted the additional mission of supporting research in all the main disciplines required for general higher education programmes in management. publications in The tables below present the research publication statistics for the year.

11 11 TRIBUTE TO ULRICH WASSMER, Business School is deeply saddened by the death of our friend and colleague Ulrich Wassmer. After months of a courageous fight against cancer, Uli passed away shortly before Christmas 2014 at the shockingly young age of 44. Uli was an Associate Professor of Strategy at Business School and was deeply involved in Ph.D. programme. He will be sorely missed. Uli was a great scholar, advancing our knowledge on interorganisational collaboration. In particular, he showed that for alliances to create value, they need to fit with the focal firm s prior set of alliances (the portfolio perspective ). Recently, he applied his knowledge to the pressing issue of environmental collaborations. Uli was highly regarded in the research community, holding an elected position in the Strategic Management Society (Cooperative Strategies SIG), and serving on the editorial board of the Journal of Management. He was very well published and cited. Uli was also a superb teacher who devised great learning outcomes for his students, drawing from both his business experience as a consultant and his scholarly expertise. He cared deeply for his students, who liked his classes a lot. While at Concordia University, Uli won the JMSB Dean s Award for Teaching Excellence. Our Ph.D. programme benefitted a lot from his ideas. Just a month before passing away, he had sent me a wonderfully crafted syllabus for a new seminar aimed at enhancing the Ph.D. research toolbox. A citizen of the world, Uli was born and raised in Germany, where he graduated with a degree in industrial engineering (Diplom-Wirtschaftsingenieur) in 1994, moved to the USA for his MBA and came back to work as a consultant in Germany and then England. He was awarded his Ph.D. in Spain in 2007 and married an Italian woman, before getting his first academic job in Canada and eventually joining us in France in We benefitted a great deal from his intercultural skills, open-mindedness and eagerness to meet people... not to mention his polyglotism: he spoke five languages. It was a real pleasure to have Uli around. He was always very kind and full of humor, extremely smart and willing to help, full of energy. He was also very modest: I only learned about many of his achievements after he died, while talking to colleagues who were as shocked as I was. Many shared stories, both personal and professional. We remembered the time he rode his bike all the way from his German hometown to Lyon and marvelled at the number of working papers he was coauthoring at the time of his death Uli fought his battle against cancer with immense courage and dignity. Always the true scientist, he studied the literature and followed recommendations for increasing one s chances, listening to doctors and adjusting his diet. I will remember Uli as a very smart scholar, full of energy and ideas to improve our Ph.D. programme. I will miss Uli s kindness and humor. I will also regret having had so little time to be with him. My thoughts are with his family: his wife Cristina and their two little boys Dario and Fabio, all three way too young to be deprived of him, and with his mother.

The report concludes that States should protect people from undue levels of commercial advertising and marketing while increasing the space for not-for-profit expressions. Within the framework of article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and based on the view that commercial messaging may be granted less protection than other forms of speech, the Special Rapporteur recommends that States regulate the area more effectively. Of particular note is the recommendation to ban all commercial advertising and marketing in public and private schools. 1
15 15 ENTREPRENEURSHIP RESEARCH CENTRE (CRE) The Entrepreneurship Research Centre (CRE) was created in 2005 and is directed by Alain Fayolle, Professor of Entrepreneurship. It groups together twelve researchers of seven different nationalities and half a dozen Doctoral and PhD students Alain FAYOLLE Director of the CRE It is continuing the work initiated twenty years ago at, notably via the Génération Entrepreneurs Chair and latterly the Rodolphe Mérieux Chair, both of which were financed by Alain Mérieux. It also manages the international and comparative GEM (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor) study, of which Business School is the French representative. The Entrepreneurship Research Centre teams make use of a number of paradigms, approaches and different sensitivities, to explore in depth our understanding of every facet of entrepreneurial activity in organizations. In keeping with previous years, key events in the year included the publication of four books, the defense of two doctorate theses (Amira BEN SALA and Imen BEN SALA), the organization of several internal and external workshops, and the further development of international collaborations, notably STEP, GEM and ASTEE. In memoriam, Emeran NZIALI Business School is deeply saddened by the death of our friend and colleague Emeran Nziali. After months of a courageous fight against cancer, Emeran passed away on the 18th November 2014 at the shockingly young age of 37. Before starting at as a Post-doc student at the Entrepreneurship Research Centre, Emeran had defended his dissertation in economics, entitled: Les théories contemporaines de l entrepreneuriat et la performance macroéconomique : une perspective sur l innovation et la distribution de la taille des firmes under the supervision of Prof. Bruno AMABLE (University Paris 1). Emeran worked closely with Alain FAYOLLE. Specifically, he had been very active in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor project. On behalf of the team, he had attended the GEM Annual Meetings in Santiago and Kuala Lumpur, directed the empirical investigations and co-authored several reports. Emeran Nziali was an energetic and promising young researcher and his passing is a great loss to the community. Our thoughts are with his family: his wife Caroline and their two little children, all three way too young to be deprived of him, and with his parents and relatives.
16 16 SCIENTIFIC Report Focus on international collaborations ASTEE The ASTEE project was co-founded by the European Coommunity, the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) that took place from December 2012 until June Professor Alain FAYOLLE was part of the 7-member project partners. The ASTEE project (Assessment Tools and indicators for Entrepreneurship Education) was initiated as a result of a recognised need for impact assessment of entrepreneurship education at different levels of education. It was the aim of the project to develop measurement tools for assessing entrepreneurial skills, knowledge, attitudes and mindsets among pupils and students, and the goal going forward is to implement these tools across educational institutions in Europe. It is by providing access to such necessary measurement tools that discussion and action to further improve and disseminate entrepreneurship education on a larger scale across Europe will be stimulated. STEP PROJECT and the Entrepreneurship Research Centre have been invited to take part in the international project, STEP (Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices). Founded in 2005 by Babson College in collaboration with six academic affiliates in Europe, the STEP Project is a global applied research initiative that explores the entrepreneurial process within business families and generates solutions that have immediate application for family leaders. Celina SMITH, Assistant Professor in Entrepreneurship, Myriam LYagouBI, Associate Professor of Finance, Head of Specialised Master in Corporate Finance, and Alain FAYOLLE will convene the next STEP meeting at on May 27 th 2015, with the EIASM workshop on Family Business to follow from May th.

20 20 THE FRENCH CORPORATE GOVERNANCE INSTITUTE (IFGE) Pierre-Yves GOMEZ Director of the IFGE The French Corporate Governance Institute was created by Pierre-Yves Gomez, who is its director. It focuses on four areas of research: directors versus executives, shareholders versus investors, financial capital versus human capital, and business versus society. With 18 researchers coming from diverse institutions, the Institute has become a leading research centre on these issues. The team includes researchers from Research, doctoral researchers who work on their theses under the management of IFGE researchers, associates, and university or management school professor-researchers involved in IFGE work. With its scientific production and training activities and its role in society as a whole, the IFGE fulfils all the criteria of an institute at Business School. BOOKstore GOMEZ, Pierre-Yves & KORINE, Harry Strong Managers, Strong Owners: Corporate Governance and Strategy. Cambridge University Press The family firm preparing generational change, the partnership that welcomes new partners, and the shareholders of a firm that chooses to go public are making decisions that will have an impact on strategy and management. Conversely, a change in strategy such as a move to diversify or a decision to take on more risk in a business can make the firm more attractive to some shareholders and less attractive to others and is therefore not ownership neutral. Opening the black box of agency theory, Harry Korine, Associate Professor at Insead and London Business School and Associate Research at IFGE, and Pierre-Yves Gomez show how management and ownership interact to shape the strategy of the firm. In their view, the critical question to ask is not what is the best strategy, but rather, who is the strategy for? With numerous detailed examples, Strong Managers, Strong Owners is an invaluable resource for company owners, board members and executives, as well as their advisors in strategy and governance.
